    I was just reading in Newsweek about medical consultants for TV shows and it said that one of the advisors for ER is a DO. His name is Jon Fong.

    Cool

    Last year I actually wrote to ER and suggested that they need to cast a DO charcter in order appear more realistic to those actually in the field. I never heard back from them.

    Hi,

    Dr. Fong came to lecture to us last year and the question of putting a D.O. on ER came up. He was not opposed to the idea at all, but he did say that there has to be some great compelling reason/story for them to put one on the show. If anyone can come up with some kind of story to write one in, and let it be realistic, then they would consider it.
